You may feel a little fear confronting them head on, but you won’t feel any better burying your head in the sand nor will it help you resolve the issues you have with your finance.
  2. Use the Save More and Spend less Philosophy
    If there is anything that occasions financial crisis to most people, it is the habit of spending more and saving less. Do you find yourself spending more than you are saving, or even spending more than you are earning?

    I have written great tips that will help you save more and spend less in another blog article.
  3. Don’t Buy Consumer items (clothes, cars, vacations etc) on Credit
    Don’t we love credit cards!!! They allow us to almost get everything we desire on credit! But think twice before you swipe your MasterCard on any credit facility. Purchasing consumer items, things that lose value in the market rather than appreciate has no difference with taking a shovel and scooping a shallow grave for your finances.
    Instead of using the freedom granted by your credit card to buy consumer goods that will only deflate in value, use the opportunity to invest in real estate, education or business.
  4. Be your own financial Guru before hiring a financial Advisor
    With the number of people whose first stop is a financial advisor’s office, I am not surprised that there are so many of us whose quest for financial stability will remain something akin to the chase for the Holy Grail.
    One thing that is common with all financial advisers is the promise on returns on all your investments. While there are some (and by way very few) genuine financial advisers, most of them are out to get your money into their pockets. Ironically, they are ought in quest to stabilize their finance, just like you are.
    Instead of running to a financial adviser when your finance mess hits the ceiling, consider downloading finance advice books from the internet where they are either cheap or free. I have no qualms in recommending Personal Finance for Dummies by Eric Tyson. It is both informative and fun to read with simple day-today language that is well-understood by everyone.
  5. Understand your employee benefits and reap the maximum from them
    There is little doubt that being employed is by far the longest and most exhausting journey to financial stability. But, if like most people out there you were not born with a silver platter in your hand, you will need to be employed before you can have enough capital to venture out on your own.
    The most common employee benefits include health insurance, preference on the company stock shares, paid vacation and sick leaves. If you make the best of these and a few others, you would soon find yourselves not looking so much forward to the end of the month cheque.
